Still use it to this day. It is great since now you can make phone calls and video chat through the app. It makes it easy to communicate with others that have phones not in service or only have WiFi. Is combined Snapchat, instagram, and messaging all in one app. Perfect to save time.

Quick access to your Facebook messages and notifies you right away so that makes it a lot simpler! Pretty simple to use. You can change the color of your chat bubbles, send stickers, links to videos, etc. would recommend if you use Facebook often!

I really don't see the purpose in having an app that is for another app. Facebook should be able to let viewers view their messages without it. It just takes up more background data and space without any extra benefit.

I have used messenger for awhile now, I do like the chat heads addition. Very easy to use, did take me a minute to figure out how to not show active anymore. sometimes you can easily hit the wrong chathead when you multiple open at once. Overall though I like this app.

Facebook messenger is really easy to use. I like that you can send pictures and write on them and you can send stickers as well. It's a free app so that's a thumbs up. I do not see anything wrong with the messenger app so there is no need for improvement in my opinion.

I hate this app. It takes up space on my phone that is completely unnecessary. Unfortunately, if I want to message anyone on my phone, I have to download this app. Wish this wasn't the case...

Its a good way to keep up with conversation . And i love that it has photo filters as well but i don't like that it tries to keep all of your info and i also heard that if you give it permission to your audio that ppl can be listening to you at all times. Creepy.

I like that you can message your friends for free as you have Internet connection. For android I enjoy the chat head bubble feature so when you're on other apps you can still communicate back with the person without having to leave what you're doing on your phone.

1. I hate that you have to have this app, I'd rather read my messages on Facebook app 2. The app really does have some cool features like the calling and video chat. I do use it alot. I do have issues sometimes there is no picture or sometimes no sound.

Is anyone else upset about the picture setting that automatically sends your picture without giving you a chance to review it?

Do you think Facebook will go back to just chat without messenger? Or Will they change it again somehow?
